A bit late but this is what we ate a LOT of when my vegetable garden was going crazy. Got a little sick of it, to be honest, but now that I no longer have an abundance of courgettes just outside my front door, I’m missing its fresh, light flavour. Can see some courgettes being bought this weekend…
Courgette and Carrot Soup
1 tblspn olive oil
1 onion, chopped
3 medium carrots, diced
3 medium courgettes, diced
1 tblspn tomato puree
Vegetable or chicken stock
Handful of fresh dill, chopped finely
- Saute the onion in the olive oil for a couple of minutes. Add the carrot and cook for a further 5 minutes before adding the courgette. Cook until vegetables are almost softened.
- Add enough stock to the pan to cover the veg by 2 cm. Stir in the tomato puree and simmer for 15 minutes.
- Once veg is completely softened, partially blend the soup being sure to leave some chunks for texture.
- Season and stir in the dill.
